The Om-en sold out their album release party last summer at the iconic Stephen Talkhouse played between the Killers and Jimmy Buffett at the Talkhouse. The Om-en are excited to play the Montauk Music Festival again and connect with all the great energy of the crowds and performers. The band will play the Montauk Music Festival, the Strawberry Festival, Bellport Summer Concert series, Long Island Summer Concert series, Alive After Five, Wanderlust Brooklyn 2020, and Pleasantville Music Festival in the New York Metropolitan area to name a few. The Om-en are spiritually motivated. They match all proceeds from gigs and album sales to teen suicide prevention and child meditation causes.

Their original song “Forever Came Too Soon” tells the personal tale of a young life and all the love lost way too early. The band supports all legitimate charity events with a donation of their performance. Let’s change the world for the better one song at a time.
